Pipeline opponents adjust strategy

Posted in Water Watch

The Norfolk Daily News Quotes: “With the Nebraska Public Service Commission’s recent decision to approve the Keystone XL pipeline through Nebraska — albeit on a different route than what TransCanada preferred — opponents of the pipeline are adjusting their strategies as well. Those strategic changes were on display Thursday afternoon when Bold Nebraska and the Nebraska Easement Action Team (NEAT) held a community meeting at Valentino’s in Norfolk.

“I think what’s happening is there’s a whole new group of landowners that did not think that they would be impacted at all,” said Jane Kleeb, Bold Nebraska’s founder. “Now they realize that they’re in the crosshairs of this maximum-capacity risky pipeline. We’re seeing a lot of energy from landowners wanting to get information from both sides.”
